Over 100 youth in the country are likely to gain employment in the near-future, as Google has announced a partnership with Majorel – a global leader in customer service – to open a new office in Accra.
With recruitment well underway to operationalise this new country office, the project is estimated to scale to 100 plus open roles within the year.
The Majorel project will provide specialised support for Google services and is part of Google’s ongoing US$1billion investment in Africa over the next five years, as announced by Alphabet CEO, Sundar Pichai.
Managing Director-Google Africa, Nitin Gajria said: “We’re happy to partner with Majorel as they create job opportunities in Ghana and help promote economic growth in Africa. Ghana has an expanding and talented workforce that we’re excited to work with and learn from at Google”.
The MD further indicated that this partnership supports Google’s direct investment in Africa through jobs, infrastructure, products and skills programmes to help people grow their careers and businesses.
As a global company, Google partners with businesses around the world to provide specialised services where the company doesn’t have appropriate in-house expertise or resources; often in fields that require significant specialised training.
“Google carefully selects its partners and staffing agencies, and ensures they follow Google’s code of conduct for suppliers,” emphasised the MD.
Recruitment and training are well underway in Accra, and the new site is on-track to be fully operational by end of January 2022.
